Dan is an amazing actor and there is no doubt that his personality as well as his looks come in as a huge part of that success. Still at the age of 69, he has got that great big smile on his face, which could always be seen reflecting his positivity and confidence. With his height of about 6 feet, he used to have a slim, athletic and well-maintained body as a young boy. But due to his growing age, he might have lost his fitness and added a little more weight on his body. There aren’t any shirtless pictures of his though, and despite the huge search made by his fans we are unable to find out any such photos in the media or his social sites. To know more about him, you can search for his biography in sites like Wikipedia. In 2016, his net worth value is about 4 million US dollars.
With a very humble nature, he won the heart of many fellow workers, directors, fans and not to mention the beautiful ladies around him. He had it all, good looks, body, manners, a successful career, fame and wealth in abundance and there is no way that women wouldn’t go after such a man. However, his list of dating seems to be empty and that could be a media stunt. But why would he? Especially when he had the paparazzi on his tail at most of times, there is not a great deal of information about his girlfriends. He had been married, once in 1991 to his wife Eileen Cregg, who was also an actress. The couple however got divorce in 2001, without having any kids. There was also a big rumor regarding his sexuality, as lack of information in his love life rose suspicious of him being a gay.
